LEIPZIG, Germany (AP) Bundesliga runner-up Leipzig has signed Portuguese winger Bruma from Turkish side Galatasaray.

Leipzig says the 22-year-old Bruma, whose full name is Armindo Tue Na Bangna, is getting a five-year deal to June 2022.

Leipzig sporting director Ralf Rangnick says, ''Bruma fits perfectly in our game with his footballing and physical capabilities. He is quick, strong technically and he has an attacking mindset.''

Bruma scored 15 goals and set up 20 more in 84 competitive games for Galatasaray.

Leipzig signed French defender Ibrahima Konate from Sochaux on Monday, and German forward Nils Quaschner from Bochum in May. Swiss goalkeeper Yvon Mvogo has also been signed from Young Boys Bern.
